If you like rum this might be the place for you. You get a rum spice tea when you come and samples at the end of the tour. Check out the paintings.

This tour is so fun & they make it easy! The distillery is slightly outside the city so they arrange a small bus to pick ppl up in the quarter. Jeff not only picked us up, but was our tour guide! Very personable & friendly. Our group was the only ppl on the bus so he dropped us off at... More

This was our fourth or fifth trip to Louisiana and we'd never been to this distillery. And we drink nd collect rum. Well, I'm glad we found this little gem. Jeff comes with a van to pick you up from the French Market (near Organic Banana), and off you go for a wee bit of history, art and story telling... More

Had a great time on this tour. Be sure to eat something before you go! They are generous with the cocktail of sweet tea and rum. Not to mention the taste tests of their product. The good thing they picked us up and dropped us off! Our driver/tour guide was great. I believe his name was Jeff. Easy to set... More

For $12 how could i go wrong?! Jeff was the tour guide and on my tour there was only myself and one other. A private tour learning about the Rum in New Orleans, great way to spend some time. Thanks Jeff

My boyfriend and I discovered this tour almost by accident and were so pleasantly surprised at the great experience! The distillery is located a few miles from the French Quarter, but they offer a free shuttle that will pick you up and bring you back. Our guide was really knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. The rum tasting... More

What a treat in NO...I found Old NO Rum online at TripAdvisor. It had good reviews and who doesn't love a good distillery tour. Kia pulled up in the shuttle bus and the adventure began. BTW pick up was easy. You pick your spot and bam they show up. Upon arrival you are greeted with a spiced rum and sweet... More

The OId New Orleans Rum Distillery is well off the beaten path, but worth the trip! We had a car and were able to find it tucked in on Frenchmen Street near Elysian Fields. They do have a shuttle bus that picks up around the quarter. It worked out to be about $10 a person, with samples of all the... More

My husband and I took this tour. Two other couples were also on the tour. The smallness of the group made it quite friendly and personal. Jeff was the tour guide and he did an excellent job.
